Not very sure about consideration... perhaps not a synonym of esteem in English?

I think consideration is a good translation here.

In the sense of respecting others' feelings and acknowledging their value.

But there are contexts in which esteem would be a good translation, when you have someone "em alta consideração", for instance.
